CENTRAL VERMONT — Tyler Carach of Florida spent the day July 31 delivering doughnuts to local law enforcement in Montpelier, Barre, Berlin and Northfield — along with his mother, Sheena.
Traveling with the Dunkin’ Donuts character, ‘Sprinkles’, Carach, dubbed ‘Donut Boy,’ visited members of the Montpelier Police Department at 9 a.m. He was greeted by Officers Chris Truhan, Chris Quesnel and Mike Philbrick. Carach’s goal is to thank Law Enforcement Officials with coffee and donuts around the country.
Local Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee, Susan Quadros-Covey, provided Tyler Carach, age 9, with coffee and nearly 1,000 donuts during his visit on July 31.
“As local business owners and Barre residents, my brother Damartin Quadros and I are proud to support the police officers who serve our community and whom we see in our Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants every day, so we were thrilled for the opportunity to help Tyler Carach in his quest to thank police officials here in our home state,” Quadros-Covey told The Bridge by email. She also has the Dunkin Donuts at 350 North Main St. in Barre and 571 Route 302 in Berlin. Why show appreciation with doughnuts? Donuts are a fun, simple way to show your appreciation. “Dunkin’s donuts are a delicious treat, and always bring a smile to someone’s face,” Quadros-Covey wrote. She added, “We are proud to serve those who serve others, and we thank our local police officials in Montpelier, Barre, Berlin and beyond for keeping our communities safe.”
Donut Boy delivered Dunkin’ donuts and coffee to the following locations on Monday, July 31: Montpelier City Police Department, Barre Town Police Department, Barre City Police Department, Berlin Police Department, Northfield Police Department and the Vermont State Police Barracks in Royalton.
